conservative group says absolutely, and it says more, that the mainstream media bias against mitt romney is out of control. now you're told to get your news somewhere else. how bad is the bias? fox news senior political analyst brit hume joins us. do you believe the mainstream media is biased? >> i think there is bias against the republican presidential candidate this year, and in every election i've covered as a journalist in washington. there's nothing new about the bias. i think it's more intense this year, exemplified in two ways. one is the extraordinary coverage given to any slip by mitt romney and the contrasting lack of such coverage by things that president obama says and does. the most conspicuous example is between romney's sharp, initial, probably poorly timed reaction to the event in egypt, libya, and subsequently elsewhere which dominated coverage for several days. in the meantime this truly horrible thing happened in libya. the administration couldn't get its story straight about what had happened. it couldn't get its story straight about what had happened. it took a week. i mean
. greta is next. see you tomorrow night. >> greta: tonight ann romney is here. you're about to get the inside scoop from her in just minutes. but first, fearless leader or total failure? there's a big difference. when it comes to president obama some people have already made their minds up. >> when you look at the facts, when you look at the record, when you look at the substance of this administration the past 3 1/2 years, we have a president who has failed, majestically failed, and he's failed all the people of this great nation with. >> look, let me tell you what the problem with this president is, in my opinion. he's absolutely lazy and detached from his job. >> media today will tell you there's a recovery underway, but there is no recovery underway. there's no indication that there's a recovery underway. the media have been certifying two years that we're in a recovery. the same media that will not examine obama's record. the same media that instead covers for him. the media is no longer about truth. it's not about informing. the media is now part of the propaganda machine. >>
any of the cases you discussed would be an opportunity for president obama were gov. mitt romney to score political points and what that argument might sound like on these issues? and is there any earthly chance that either of them would try to do something like that? >> the only case that has gotten onto the radar of the broader public would be health care. i think it would be a reference back. the supreme court, because the economy takes all the oxygen out of the election with a little bit of foreign affairs, the supreme court does not play among undecided voters could but it is a motivator for one space to get out and get to the polls because you want this person to replace justice ginsburg when she retires, for example. and health care is really the only thing that resonates. if there is any possible outcome is that the obama administration has declined to defend the defense of marriage act. and governor romney may well decide that he would defend the constitutionality of that statute could but it does not seem that that kind of social conservative question has a lot of salie
